No More Warning Lights, Low additive fluid level, LIMP Mode, Regeneration or DPF Problems EVER AGAIN!
Let us help you to save £££’s on your DPF filter. One of our customer recently saved over £4500 on his Mercedes Sprinter DPF. We can completely remove the DPF filter and delete the DPF programming from your car/van electronic control unit (ECU). Once the DPF Delete has been carried out any related warning lights will disappear and regenerations will cease completely.
More about Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and how it works?
A diesel particulate filter (or DPF) is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. Wall-flow diesel particulate filters usually remove 85% or more of the soot, and under certain conditions can attain soot removal efficiencies of close to 100%. Some filters are single-use, intended for disposal and replacement once full of accumulated ash. Others are designed to burn off the accumulated particulate either passively through the use of a catalyst or by active means such as a fuel burner which heats the filter to soot combustion temperatures; engine programming to run when the filter is full in a manner that elevates exhaust temperature or produces high amounts of NOx to oxidize the accumulated ash, or through other methods. This is known as "filter regeneration". Cleaning is also required as part of periodic maintenance, and it must be done carefully to avoid damaging the filter. Failure of fuel injectors or turbochargers resulting in contamination of the filter with raw diesel or engine oil can also necessitate cleaning. The regeneration process occurs at road speeds higher than can generally be attained on city streets; vehicles driven exclusively at low speeds in urban traffic can require periodic trips at higher speeds to clean out the DPF. If the driver ignores the warning light and waits too long to operate the vehicle above 40 miles per hour (64 km/h), the DPF may not regenerate properly, and continued operation past that point may spoil the DPF completely so it must be replaced.
Inevitably every DPF filter is going to clog up at some point. Almost all manufacturers will claim this will take a very long time, but as this technology is new, we will only discover over time just how long they will last. This is making diesel enthusiasts very nervous as they are certainly not cheap to replace.
Blocked DPF filter my cause a damage to engine internal parts , exhaust system and Turbo charger.
DPF Removal/delete – Benefits:
It is fully legal to remove the catalytic converter from a Diesel Car and it will not raise any issue at MOT time. This also applies to DPF (Diesel Particulate Filters), which are not even mentioned in the testers manual.
In January 2012 there was a regulation change for cars that require an emissions test where 'if a cat was fitted as standard, it must be there for the MOT'. Diesel cars are not required to pass this emissions test, so that regulation doesn't apply. There are no further emissions related changed expected in the near future and any changes to emission tests are unlikely due to the massive cost to the MOT stations.
High Tech Engineering unlike many others garages don’t replace original DPF box with aftermarket pipe. Most of DPF boxes are integrated with catalyst converter. We only remove filter insert and leave original box with the cat on the car. So the exhaust system looks completely original and modification done cannot be seen.
